i. Candidates with GATE/NET (JRF/LS)/ UGC (JRF/LS) /GPAT/ Inspire Fellow / Sponsored by some outside agency as a full-time candidate need not clear Institute written examination. For all other candidate Institute written examination is to be cleared. However, GATE/NET (JRF/LS)/ UGC (JRF/LS) /GPAT/ Inspire Fellow/ Sponsorship from outside agency or Institute Examinations are only for shortlisting of the applicants. Mere shortlisting of an applicant does not confirm admission to Ph.D. Programme. The admission shall be solely based upon the performance of individuals during “presentation and interaction”
and availability of the Supervisor in the proposed area of research.
ii. The admission to PhD programme (Full-Time/Part-Time) in all disciplines mentioned in this advertisement shall be made purely on the basis of a “presentation” to be made by the shortlisted applicants in their proposed area of research followed by “interaction” to be conducted by the respective Department Admission Committee. Mere shortlisting of an applicant does not confirm admission to Ph.D. Programme.
iii. Shortlisting of candidates (other than GATE/NET (JRF/LS)/ UGC (JRF/LS)/GPAT/ Inspire Fellow / Sponsored by some outside agency as a full-time candidate) shall be done by Departmental Admission Committee for the process of “presentation and interaction” for the applicants. For this purpose, a screening test shall be conducted by the respective Departments. Only those applicants who score marks above the cutoff of 40%, i.e. 24 marks out of 60 for UR category candidates, and 35% i.e. 21 out of 60 for
SC/ST/OBC/EWS/PWD candidates in the screening test shall be eligible for presentation and interaction process. Marks obtained in the screening test shall not be counted for preparation of final merit list of the successful candidates.
iv. The Pattern of Examination shall be as of GATE and NET examination. The Screening Test will be of MCQ Mode.
